Anna Powell is a Good Books author.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2–Various folks, beginning with his mother, unintentionally misinform a curly haired boy about verbal manners as he attempts an errand to the store. Mom's Yum, yum, what a lovely dinner doesn't serve Willy well when conversing with the garbage truck crew, and good riddance to bad garbage insults the neighbors moving away. Roberts provides haute humor with tidy spreads of Willy Nilly's urban travels. Highlights of his playful use of color and composition include a purple-coiffed granny and a park-keeper submerged in the pond. Couple this with Laura Krauss Melmed's A Hug Goes Around (HarperCollins, 2002) or Sarah Marwil Lamstein's I Like Your Buttons! (Whitman, 1999) for a positive twist on the passing-it-on plot.–Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
